HOMOSEXUAL ADOPTIONS DECRIED BY PRO-FAMILY GROUP

          WASHINGTON, DC (CWNews.com) - A pro-family group blasted the increasing occurrence of homosexual couples adopting children in the US, after two high-profile lesbian activists announced their adoption of Texas twins.

          The Family Research Council characterized the adoption by Human Rights Campaign leader Elizabeth Birch and Hilary Rosen, a lobbyist for the Recording Industry Association of America, of twins Jacob and Anna born on January 7 as the latest example of the disturbing trend.

          "A mountain of social science, the world's major religions, common sense, and observation tell us that children have the best chance to thrive in married, mother-and-father-based families," said Robert Knight, FRC's Director of Cultural Studies. "... Placing babies in a lesbian household deliberately deprives these children of a father's love." Knight added that studies have shown that children raised in homosexual households are four times as likely to eventually identify themselves as homosexual or to experiment with homosexual behavior.

          He said that more than a million married couples in the US are awaiting the opportunity to adopt children and urged states to pass legislation favoring adoption of children by father-and-mother households over homosexual or lesbian couples or single adults.
